Many of our current research projects at MERL are squarely in the pervasive-computing realm, such as: interactive multi-user tabletop displays, operator-identifying automotive controls, digital home networking, location-aware RFID tags, semi-passive RFID tags for sensor networks, novel physical and chemical sensors, speech-based information retrieval for mobile devices, and vision-based person/object tracking. But because the results of this work have been or will be presented in forums familiar to the ubiquitous-computing community, I won’t describe them in this talk.
Instead, I hope to persuade you that the world of Pervasive Computing is bigger than it seems and that a broader perspective can lead to unexpected discoveries and opportunities. I will use a number of MERL projects to make my point.
(This is a reprise of Joe’s keynote talk for Pervasive Computing 2006.)
